Oliver trailers

I was looking at the Oliver on Facebook and it looks like a really nice trailer. Does anyone know anything about them? How much do they cost?

Thanks Jim. That's what I like about FGRV. The moderators are so polite and helpful. I believe his is the best RV site on the internet.

I cannot comprehend why a new trailer company, and a high end trailer company, would create a trailer with an interior height of only 6'1". Am I missing something? Must be a standard mould size? I don't get it.

They have never made it a secret they are billed as "luxury class" all these years and built for that demographic How tall are you Adam?

Their website certainly isn't luxurious . It doesn't list what the trailer has for standard equipment , what options are available , there are no interior pictures ,only one outside photo, no price list, no detailed description ETC . Escape has a much better website and IMHO an equally good product

As Donna posted, they are moving to a server or lost their site content. It's in the archives if you are interested, or you can Ask Robert he is a member here

I'm just north of 6'2". Always thought 6'3" or less was about average height but I suppose not. It's frustrating finding an affordable, and apparently non affordable, egg trailer. I guess I need to shrink a little or buy an Airstream .

The average male in the U.S. according to government statistics is 69.9 " in height . At 74" or 75" in height you are taller than the vast majority of U.S. males . Since most things are built for the average person you and I and my 6ft.5" son in law will continue to have problems due to our height . I do not believe it is a conspiracy against vertically challenged human beings
Plus if they built the trailers to accommodate people who are tall the trailer may become too tall to fit through a normal garage door thus creating another problem

Oliver's Facebook page has a number of great shots of the Oliver factory and the construction of their luxury trailers.
Interesting to note the workers aren't using masks or any other personal protective equipment in the fiberglass shop.
That would not happen in Canada.

That wouldn't fly in my back yard. When I grind fibreglass, I am suited up.

"That would not happen in Canada."

I'd bet a lot of things have gone on in Canada you don't know about
